The voting was too close to pick a clear winner for the Chargers first selection. So, I came up with a brilliant idea – we are going to do two side by side mocks. One with Gordon taken in the first round and a second with Brown taken in the first round.

In 2014 he carried the ball 343 times for the Badgers amassing 2,587 yards with a 7.5 average (that is not a typo) while scoring 29 touchdowns. He was the runner up to Mariota in the Heisman voting.
